Elena has graduated from college and is traveling around Europe with her friend Aubrey. They are half way through their trip and are in Lebanon. They go into a cafe to use the internet when Elena meets a handsome stranger.
Sheikh Asim has enough pressure from his business to deal with his mother forcing him to settle down and marry the daughter of a business acquaintance. He is enchanted by Elena's beauty and asks her to be his fake fiancee and help him get out of the arranged marriage.
As the days slip into weeks, Asim and Elena develop a relationship, but when he can not commit to resolving his engagement or to her, Elena returns home. Can Asim repair the damage and face a future together?
Loved it! There is nothing like a Leslie North Sheikh book. I loved Asim and sweet Elena. I could have done without some of Aubrey's quips and attitude.
This was a great start to the series!
I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
